“…the male experience and the male perspective is still seen as more universal, more public, than the female.”

This huge and brain-stimulating list has been making the rounds online and I thought I’d share. Vela magazine compiled a list of non-fiction (short-form essays, travel writing, science writing, memoir, political essay and more) by women, almost all of it available online. The editors write:

We know, sadly, how much easier it is to pack a syllabus or an anthology with male writers, and so this list is meant to serve as a reminder of the abundant, stellar nonfiction by women, and a sort of huh-uh! to excuses about not being able to find enough work by women writers.

Dig it!
